Activists at COP23 decry corporations
Reporting from COP 23 in Bonn, Germany, Democracy Now! ventures to the nearby blockade of the toxic Hambach Mine, the largest open-pit coal mine in Europe. Environmental activists say the mine extracts an extremely dirty form of coal called lignite, "brown coal." It causes the highest CO2 emissions of any kind of coal if burned.

They want to save the remaining German forest from being cut down to make way for the expanding the toxic capitalist project. Only 10 percent of the ancient forest remains at this time.
